June 8 (Reuters) - Bristol Palin, a daughter of 2008
Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has married
former U.S. Marine Dakota Meyer, a winner of the Medal of Honor,
more than a year after their initial wedding plans were called
Palin's manager, David Martin, confirmed Palin's marriage
but declined to provide further details.
"Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you'll end up
where you're supposed to be," Palin and Meyer told entertainment
news outlet ET. "We are so happy to share with loved ones the
wonderful news that we got married!"
Palin, 25, a reality television personality, announced on
her blog in March 2015 that she and Meyer had gotten engaged and
would marry in a matter of months. But the wedding was called
off in May 2015.
Palin said she met Meyer in 2014 when he came to Alaska to
film the reality television show "Amazing America" with her
mother, who was the 2008 vice presidential running mate of
Republican U.S. Senator John McCain.
Meyer is the father of Bristol Palin's second child, a
daughter born late last year, according to People magazine. She
has a 7-year-old son from a previous relationship.
Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest U.S. award
for bravery, in 2011 for saving 36 of his Marine comrades' lives
during an ambush in Afghanistan in 2009.
